    All right, I think I'll get me some 16 ouncers then. I still think 14 is just right, but so be it.

    You know i Just noticed the part of it where you said you didnt want 15 ouncers because it might create bad habits when you wear MMA gloves.

    For one I'd like to suggest that your primary defense should be timing, distancing, moving your head, and footwork and that they remain the same, MMA or boxing gloves. I have no troubles with stuff "slipping through" on me when I change from 16 ouncers to MMA gloves because I don't use my big gloves as a defensive crutch and you shouldnt either.

    For two I'd like to suggest that you not be a cheapskate and maybe jsut buy some MMA training gloves. I just did a write up of some primetime level 4 MMA gloves which are extra padded MMA gloves with the impact absorbiton of a 16 ounce glove. Basically I highly recommend them, especially if you're concerned about MMA or bareknuckle fighting.



    Edit: I'd also like to suggest that if you guys are having such troubles getting punches through when wearing 16 ounce gloves that you need to work on your punching. Sure, people can use them as a defensive crutch but in sparring this should force you to learn to punch more accurately and then when you DO switch to smaller gloves you'll be able to make more of them because of your improved offense..

    Indeed - I'll have to look into some training-thickness MMA gloves.

    60 bucks a pair and totally worth it, even to a cheapskate like me.

    I enjoy sparring with the added weight and awkwardness of 16's.

    Yeah, a lot of gyms you go to won't let you spar if you have smaller than 16oz gloves. If you're like 130lbs or less, most gyms would let you get away with sparring with 14oz or smaller gloves, but if you're a more or less average sized guy you'll probably get **** for not having 16's.

    So you are saying I should heavier boxing gloves more often when training ? Use my standard defense ( when I am barehanded or using my mma sparring gloves ) but focus on squeezing them through the gaps in my partners' guard ?


    Sounds reasonably ... I could even have who ever is refing us shoot me in the butt with an aisoft gun when I use them the gloves as bucklers ...

    I don't actually find that it's generally too hard to find openings in someone's guard when they shell up behind their boxing gloves. When you cover up too much, you can't see what's coming nearly as well, so it's a lot easier to get hit with good shots that take you by surprise (especially uppercuts and body shots).
